Police investigating break-in, vehicle theft

Vandalia Police are continuing to investigate the break-in at a local automobile dealership and the theft of a car from that dealership on Saturday evening.
Police Chief Jeff Ray said on Wednesday morning that they currently have no suspects and are waiting for reports on evidence sent to the state lab.
Police were notified at 11:37 p.m. on Saturday of three individuals running out of the Arthur Young Inc. dealership at 122 W. Gallatin St.
Responding officers discovered that a window in the building had been broken out, and determined that a 2015 Chevrolet Malibu had been stolen.
Police conducted a city-wide search that evening, with negative results.
The car was found at about 7 a.m. Monday off of the alley in the 300 block of Kennedy Boulevard, Ray said. There was no apparent damage to the vehicle, he said.
Police were able to obtain some fingerprint and DNA evidence, he said, and that was sent to the state lab for evaluation.
At this time, police have no suspects, Ray said. He also said that while three individuals were seeing running in the area of the dealership on Saturday evening, police cannot confirm that they were the individuals involved in the break-in and vehicle theft.
